Listen In! Phonecasting the Convention

Take a look at the new Listen In section in our sidebar: you will see a small red-and-grey audio player from Gcast.

By clicking the play button, you will be able to hear audio reports from the convention! That's right, we are phonecasting! (i.e. podcasting by phone) We'll be calling in reports from the convention, and hopefully interviewing attendees and guest speakers too.

We probably won't be able to use this service to record convention sessions because a cell phone won't pick up voices that aren't speaking directly into the phone. However, if there are particular aspects of the convention or speakers you want to hear about, post a comment to this blog and we'll see what we can do.

For now, there is just one phonecast on there: a welcome message recorded today, labeled "May 16, 2007 Phone call." Check back closer to the convention for new recordings. You can also subscribe to the phonecast and have it delivered to you by email (see the Subscribe Free link below the player) or even add the player to your own web page or blog (see the Add to my Page link).

Happy listening!
